I wholeheartedly disagree here.. I only use (and only ever will) use Desktop
mode in Wine. It's the same (for me) as using Tabbed browsing in Mozilla :
you have all the related mess in one window :-)

I agree that it seems to be a hack for now because of the one application
<=> one desktop window 'feature' but well, Alexandre promised this to be
fixed for 1.1 :-))
